Darrel Chaney (born March 9, 1948 in Hammond, Indiana) is an American former player in Major League Baseball who played for the Cincinnati Reds and Atlanta Braves from 1969 to 1979.
Chaney was selected by the Reds in the 1966 draft, and later led the Southern League with 23 home runs in 1968, earning him a spot on the Reds' roster in 1969, playing mostly as a backup shortstop behind Reds star Dave ConcepciĆ³n. His most notable year was 1976, his first season after being traded to Atlanta. As the Braves' regular shortstop, Chaney batted .252 with one HR and 50 RBI. But over the next three seasons he was unable to hold the job against competition from two other players, and he was released at the end of the 1979 season.
In his 915-game career Chaney hit for a .217 batting average, with 14 home runs, 190 runs batted in, 237 runs scored, 458 hits, 75 doubles, 17 triples and 19 stolen bases.
